Meeting Scheduled, Document Not Released. What is a "week" in Montgomery County? #celltower #DAS #smalllcells

Small cell tower in MoCo
4/20/2017 UPDATE:  Montgomery County has deleted the statement that the proposed zoning change will be released one week before the public meeting. The public does not need to read the proposal to be able to comment on it, right?  Just "trust" that Montgomery County is "good" and agree to any proposals. No need for notice. 

It is important that Montgomery County residents have good imaginations.  

The Montgomery County Government has scheduled a meeting to discuss proposed changes to the zoning ordinance that concerns cell towers.  The County said that the proposed changes would be made public one week prior to the meeting.  The meeting is April 26th.  Today is April 19th, the Wednesday before the meeting, yet the proposed changes are nowhere to be found.  

Just imagine what the County might be up to and mark your calendar to attend the April 26th meeting.

Attn: Montgomery County residents Montgomery County will host a Wireless Telecommunications Community Meeting to discuss proposed changes to the County zoning ordinance and process for regulatory review of wireless telecommunications structures, to address new deployment and densification of lower-height (17’ to 30’) wireless technology in residential and commercial areas.
The Community Meeting is planned for April 26, 2017 at the Executive Office Building in the Cafeteria and Outdoor Plaza, 101 Monroe St, Rockville, MD 20850.
The County has invited equipment manufacturers to display so-called “stealth” equipment that disguises wireless antennas as streetlights and similar fixtures from 6 pm to 7 pm in the Outdoor Plaza.
From 7 pm to 8:30 pm, the County will host a discussion regarding potential changes to the zoning ordinance and regulatory review process. A summary and text of the potential changes will be made available here at one week prior to the Community meeting.

  1. No more summer surprises! The County Exec. should show the public his proposed ZTA now. This recommended zoning legislation was supposed to be released in March. It’s bad enough that the County’s Wireless Telecommunications Community Meeting keeps changing: currently scheduled for June 14.
